Astraware Acrostic is a quick-style word puzzle game - solve the clues to reveal the words and find the vertical target word that connects through them all!
Perfect if you love Crosswords but like something a bit quicker that you can fit into a shorter break and still finish a puzzle!
There are 50 built-in free puzzles with a range of difficulties and sizes, so you can play offline at any time.
You get free unlimited access to play two new Daily Acrostic puzzles each day, and compete on the global leaderboard! There's a free Weekender puzzle available each week with a larger puzzle and trickier clues.
The unique twist are some novel features to boost your progress - highlighting in puzzle shows you where vowels and consonants appear, and each time you get one of the horizontal words, the target letter is revealed throughout the puzzle! Still need a bit of a hint? (Everyone does, from time to time!) - ask for a hint for a small time cost and our bookend-hints give you the first and last letters of the word which we've found are a huge help!

Ratings and Reviews
Fun until purchase
This game was fun but making an in app purchase of more puzzles causes the game to crash and then it won't reopen. I have tried every step to fix it but it won't work. Play the free stuff but don't waste money!
This app has been interesting and challenging in most instances. Some of the clues are vague, which makes it sometimes difficult to complete the word or the puzzle. However, those instances are infrequent enough only to note in passing I also like the format of having four different puzzles each day.
I would prefer that when letters need to be filled in, those blanks would always be those that need to be filled at the beginning of the word. I do not always check the position of the “fill in the blank” letter, so often waste many seconds. I do like knowing how I rate in comparison with others. This has been a terrific addition to my puzzles activities. Thank you.
Since the latest update I can't play the game since it's completely frozen. I deleted the game and download it again but it was still frozen!!!! I need my Acrostic fix!!!!!
